  1. Pedro Gomez Needs A New Assignment

    Feb 23, 2006, 5:54 AM EDT

    I don’t understand the ESPN fascination with Barry Bonds.  ESPN has assigned him his very own analyst to watch and report on every single detail of what Barry Bonds is doing.  Pedro’s most recent report on Barry went something like this: Barry Bonds arrived at camp here at Scottsdale Stadium at approximately 7:52 am this…

  2. Chase Utley’s Fiancee

    Feb 22, 2006, 11:59 AM EDT

    Phillies.com had an interview with Chase Utley the other day, talking about his off season routine, in which it mentioned his fiancee Jen.  This got me to wondering who Chase is going to tie the knot with.  After a little research, it turns out Chase is engaged to fellow UCLA alum Jennifer Cooper. (Far right,…

  3. Mardy Collins: That’s just how we do

    Feb 22, 2006, 10:48 AM EDT

    TrueHoop really is the best basketball resource on the web.  Regarding Mardy Collins: "That’s just the way I was brought up, with Coach Chaney, we don’t just give guys layups. It’s anybody in basketball, it’s not like I’m trying to intentionally hurt a guy. That’s just something I did growing up. In Philadelphia, that’s how…

  4. Trade Allen, Trade Bobby, Trade John Street

    Feb 22, 2006, 8:25 AM EDT

    I usually love a good trade rumor, but, quite frankly, I’m tired of them.  I’d rather just dwell on the fact that Billy King is inept.  The latest out on the rumor mill had Billy seriously thinking about a deal that would have sent Iverson to Denver: I wrote Friday in our blog from All-Star…

  5. John Candy Would Be Proud

    Feb 22, 2006, 7:45 AM EDT

    This is pretty out there and insane so I thought I would pass it along.  ESPN: Bear crashed kids hockey game, meets Mrs. Chuck Norris: One Wednesday evening earlier this month, Angyiou was walking near the village community center with her two sons when a group of children playing street hockey nearby started shouting and…

  6. The O.G. on the Y.T. Talkin’ Bout the D.C.

    I don’t know what the shit this guy is talking about.

  7. Conine Sent Packing

    Feb 21, 2006, 5:10 PM EDT

    The Phillies have traded 40-year-old bench bat Jeff Conine to the Reds for two minor leaugers and a bag of used equipment. I’m not quite sure what the reasoning is on this one. He didn’t cost much, and if the team is building a contender for this year, I’d rather have a seasoned veteran than…

  8. Terrell Owens Odds to Spit

    Feb 21, 2006, 10:19 AM EDT

    A gambling website is taking bets as to who Terrell Owens will spit on next.  Sheldon Brown is the early odds on favorite. Dre Bly                  25-1    Bill Parcells      80-1Sheldon Brown    25-1    Jerry Jones      80-1A Ref                     50-1    D. McNabb …

  9. See You Opening Day

    Feb 21, 2006, 10:00 AM EDT

    I’m sure some of you sabermetricians out there already know, but for the rest of you, you can buy me a beer or a dollar dog to thank me later.  I know what you all were thinking, you couldn’t wait to get your tickets to opening day at Citizens Bank Park, which you knew go…

  10. Fanhouse: YouTube Fun

    Feb 21, 2006, 12:09 AM EDT

    I dissect the game tape of both Giants fans and Eagles fans.  Eagles fans get the edge for creativity, originality, and all around less moronic behavior. [Fanhouse]

    The Answer says "we got robbed" while Iggy wonders "what happened?": [via FP] Video of Iggy’s insane dunk from behind the basket from Allen Iverson.

  12. AI: ‘This is the hardest place in the world to play in’

    Feb 20, 2006, 9:56 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson talks about Philadelphia and his new team in an interview with the Inquirer’s Stephen A. Smith. I love my fans in Philadelphia.  I love my fans in Philadelphia…  but, this is the hardest place in the world to play in.   … I became a man in Philadelphia. Nothing spectacular, but interesting to get…
